One thread catcher

Today I made up my first, certainly not my last, thread catcher.

I used mum's  Pfaff sewing machine to sew this and  just like others who have posted on this blog I too chose a decorative stitch for the edging.  

 Thank you Susan for your helpful advice in making this thread catcher. 

Cheers, Simone
